Just Great

an inverse poem about perspective

By Kiersten WeldonPublished 2 months ago 1 min read
Top Story - February 2024

Everything is just great

Don't try to convince me that

Every waking moment is a struggle and

Things won't ever get better

There is so much to be grateful for

Even if

I go days without sunlight

There is always a rainbow after a storm

And it's not true that

I will never get better


If I just try harder

I will definitely cheer up

And don't you tell me that

I don't stand a chance

I have so much to live for

I have been told that

"It's all in my head" and

"This too shall pass" and

You will never hear me say

I am not okay

    Thats very good poem

  • Fantastic! That really is a struggle of mental health and perception, one minute you’re feeling the way this poem reflects from top to bottom, but then you may feel down like when reading this poem backwards. I think it’s so common people can alternate between those two feelings. You do an excellent job with this!
